Join us in the Children’s room to learn about logging in New England in the early 1900’s! Trouble in Nathan’s Woods is a novel inspired by the author’s family history.
The story centers around an eleven-year old boy named Nathan. As war rages in Europe in 1917, Nathan learns that enemy spies lurk in New Hampshire, where he lives in his family’s lumber camp—and they intend to burn these woods! Convinced that Pa’s new German teamster is a spy, Nathan and his friend Orey desperately try to thwart his plan and save the lumber camp. Will they succeed?
Mary Morton Cowan will read sections from her book. There will be old photographs to inspect and activities that extend knowledge of those times. All are welcome.
